^That video at 0:20 suggests that this game is on PS3, XBOX 360, PC, and DS.
And this (official) website too:
http://assassinscreed.us.ubi.c...-creed-1/experience/ (http://assassinscreed.us.ubi.com/assassins-creed-1/experience/)
http://assassinscreed.uk.ubi.c...-creed-1/experience/ (http://assassinscreed.uk.ubi.com/assassins-creed-1/experience/)
Yeah, I know about Chronicles and Discovery.
Also strange, it specifically mentions Chronicles:

Assassins Creed, Assassinís Creed AltaÔr Chronicles, Ubisoft, Ubi.com, and the Ubisoft logo are trademarks of Ubisoft Entertainment in the U.S. and/or other countries.
But that boxart is identical to AC1, so did Chronicles originally have this boxart?
It only lists one ESRB/BBFC rating, and on DS it looks like it has a "PG" rating from the Australian Classification Board or 12+ from PEGI.
On PC, it looks like it has an MA15+ rating.
Why use ACB ratings instead of just ESRB and BBFC?
It also mentions Gameloft, developers of Chronicles.

It looks like it'd be Chronicles, but why make it look like it was actually AC1?
I'd understand marketing Chronicles and AC1 closely but this seems confusing to no end, like it would be counterproductive.

there is currently 2 AC games on the Nintendo DS

Assassin's Creed: Altair's Chronicles - which does share the same box art work from AC1 - due to it being a direct sequel - it should say in the text about it being a sequel though?

Or check reviews.

And

Assassin's Creed 2: Discovery - again, this is not the same story as the larger console game.


You may see an Nintendo 3DS game listed on some sites - however this is not being released.


There is no Assassin's Creed [the original] game on DS - I hope this helps?
